“Empowering and entertaining”, “could not be more relevant”, “Incredibly slick” – Audiences at Deptford Lounge have been throwing themselves into Hidden Track Theatre’s interactive show Drawing the Line and feeding back in praise of the exciting show that puts you in charge of a nation. See what they had to say, and watch co-creator Elliot Hughes talking about the production, then book your tickets!
Running until 25 May 2019 as part of the Albany Theatre’s REBELS season, Hidden Track Theatre’s Drawing the Line is an experience that combines storytelling, gaming and group decision-making. For every performance, ‘the line’ divides the audience into two rival nations. Each side then determines how their nation grows. Strongly influenced by current political developments, the show will inspire the creation, destruction and rebuilding of unique communities every night.
Audiences have a number of choices about their involvement in the action. They can simply sit back and watch as the story unfolds, or take much more active part by waving flags, building cities, singing the national anthem and even defending their nation on the battlefield.
Drawing the Line was first staged in London as a scratch production at Camden People’s Theatre. At those scratch nights, when audience get to experience a work-in-progress production, feedback described the show as “audacious, unique, super fun,” and “funny and eye-opening”, while other audience members also commented that “The audience participation genuinely didn’t feel daunting at all.” The action is led by a cast of Nisa Cole, Elliot Hughes and Steph Reynolds.
Drawing the Line runs at Deptford Lounge, 9 Giffin St, Deptford, London SE8 4RJ from 9 to 25 May 2019 with performances Thursday to Saturday at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced £10-£14. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
